A very important step in making this salad is massaging the avocado into the kale to help soften the leaves. If you have little ones this is a step where they can help. Don’t forget to clean those hands first.
Add in the remainder ingredients, mix and you have yourself a most wonderful, tasty power packed Kale salad.
Kale has protein and fiber and is high in beta carotene, vitamin k, c, lutein, zeaxanthin and calcium. Kale like broccoli contains sulforaphane, especially when chopped or minced and sulforaphane is a chemical with strong anti-cancer properties.
